Former police lieutenant to be tried again March 11, former officer accused of the killing to be tried March 18
A former police lieutenant accused of covering up a police killing after Hurricane Katrina will begin his second trial March 11. The former officer accused of the killing will be tried a week later.
U.S. District Judge Lance Africk set the dates Tuesday for David Warren, who is accused of shooting 31-year-old Henry Glover on Sept. 2, 2005, and Travis McCabe, accused of doctoring a police report to make it appear that Warren was justified.
Africk ruled in 2011 that McCabe deserves a second trial because an earlier copy of the report he allegedly changed was found after his conviction.
A federal appeals court overturned Warren's conviction in December, saying he should have been tried separately from officers accused of the cover-up. His trial is to begin on March 18.
